Maegan & Justin are the quintessential Alabama couple – they fell in love at school and even named their dogs Crimson & Tide – we did a fun engagement shoot in Tuscaloosa last fall and had an awesome time taking their wedding pictures in Birmingham. I also love that in addition to cheering for the Tide, they are each other’s biggest fan. I know that sounds cheesy, but they are both very kind, servant-hearted people and they really do support each other – it is a characteristic that will bring them a lifetime of happiness.
Maegan has a planner’s personality (which I really appreciate) and put together a fun peacock-themed wedding. Like so many of our bride & grooms, Maegan and Justin gave us permission to take great pictures even though it was hot outside and would have been easy to say no. Getting outside in front of the Highlands Methodist for just a few minutes gave us some really sweet pictures. . .and the light by Hotel Highland was amazing. Just a few Cats played at the reception – definitely one of my favorite bands, and it was an awesome party! It was also great to work with Angela and John from Mainstreet again – they’re some of my favorite people.
Details that I really liked: the peacock feather on Maegan’s shoe. . .the krispy-kreme groom’s cake drizzled with chocolate in case they weren’t sweet enough already. . .the brocade spotlights on the wall of the Avon theater that made it photograph so well. . .a band that does a killer Michael Jackson cover!!!
